Prayers for Papal Visit: for a government assembly & charity

Prayer for Government Assembly
(in honor of Pope Francis’ address to Congress)

O God, who arrange all things in wondrous order
and govern in marvelous ways,
look with favor on the assembled, for whom we now pray,
and mercifully pour out upon them the spirit of your wisdom,
that they may decide everything for the well-being and peace of all
and may never turn aside from your will.
Through Christ our Lord.

Prayer for an Increase in Charity
(in honor of Pope Francis’ visit with the poor served by Catholic Charities DC)

Set our hearts aflame, O Lord,
with the Spirit of your charity, we pray,
that we may always think thoughts
worthy and pleasing to your majesty
and love you sincerely in our brothers and sisters.
Through Christ our Lord.
